Pujols Has 5 RBIs, Cards Beat Brewers 12-3 In NLCS
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Albert Pujols had one of the biggest postseason nights of his career in Game 2 of the NL championship series, going 4 for 5 with a home run, three doubles and five RBIs as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 12-3 on Monday.

Pujols belted a two-run homer in the first, a two-run double in the third and an RBI double in the fifth, then added another double in the seventh. The crowd cheered sarcastically when the Brewers finally retired him in the eighth.

His big hits came one night after Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder bashed the Brewers to a 9-6, come-from-behind victory in Game 1.

The series now shifts to St. Louis, where Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter will face Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo on Wednesday night.
